Watch these cooling towers collapse in slow motion

Another fine video from The SlowMoGuys

By  

Enjoy a mid-Monday video break by watching this clip from TheSlowMoGuys - they famously film things in slow-motion with a super-fast-frame-rate camera.

Usually they film small item things like a water balloon hitting the face, etc., but this time we get a very cool video of some nuclear power cooling towers that are being imploded:

My favorite part of the video? When a bird flies by the destruction as if nothing was going on - "Oh yeah, this kind of thing happens all the time," the bird said in a statement later.
